Benny Green is not a lot of things; he is not slow, he is not boring and he certainly not an inexperienced amateur. 

Jazz at the Bistro regularly welcomes some of the biggest names in jazz to its intimate, listening-room stage, but on Wednesday the crowds filed into the Harold & Dorothy Steward Center for Jazz to a new level and intensity.

As a nearly perennial visitor to the Bistro stage, modern-day crooner Kurt Elling is considered by many to be one of the highlights of the Jazz St. Louis season.

An air of familiarity filled the Ferring Jazz Bistro as the stage was graced with the melodic styles of a late 1930s jazz lounge. Piloted by Freddy Cole, veteran performer and member of one of jazz's most famous families, the quintet performed a selection of melodic, vocally lead songs of lost and lingering love.

Though they're nearing 15 years as a band, the members of Kneebody are largely regarded as youngsters in the world of jazz for their wildly innovative approach to music.

The world is filled with musical talent buried beneath the pressures and excuses that daily life continually provides, but true passion cannot be subdued.

The Nth Power 10/15/14

Streaming Audio

Drawing from experiences in funk, soul, pop and jazz, the Nth Power lay down groove based soul jams that are catered to the stage.

For many fans of the contemporary funk and fusion scene, the arrival of Jeff Lorber Fusion in St. Louis marked a major event.

Outside the walls of the Harold and Dorothy Steward Center for Jazz, sheets of ice coated the world in a frosty sheen, but inside the mood was warm and inviting.

Each year, I keep up with hundreds of YouTube subscriptions from artists and labels to radio stations and filmmakers. While I greatly appreciate the manicured visual representation of music videos, there is something special about the live-to-tape recorded video sessions as well that capture a unique moment in music.
